Christmas Craft Creations September Sketch Challenge Reminder


Hello everyone.  This is my reminder post as a guest designer at Christmas Craft Creations (CCC) for their September SKETCH challenge.


I stuck to the sketch this time and created this fun scene.


The critter couple from Lawn Fawn (LF) Winter Skies were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on a scrap of Xpress It cardstock.   Masked them, then stamped the single critter to their left.  Coloured and shaded them in with Copic markers, then fussy cut the new image trio out.


Took an A2 stitched panel die cut from mixed media paper next and masked the moon and hilly slope.  Ink blended Salty Ocean and Prize Ribbon distress inks to create the background.  Splattered with water and blot with a paper towel to give it a wintry feel.  Added shading details to the moon with light gray Copic markers, then dried the panel completely with my heat tool.  Stamped Santa’s sleigh and the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.  Assembled the card onto a white card base to finish.


Before I go, I want to thank Charlotte and the CCC team for having me back as their guest.  There is still plenty of time to join the challenge.  To see more inspirations from the reminder design team, click HERE.  Thank you for stopping by.

This is so charming. Watching for Santa is the sweetest thing and the two bundled together is the most precious. This card just grabs my heart for some reason. Great job, Trina.
